Hunters Country House

Unfortunately the weather was very damp during our stay. Our house in the grounds was in a very lush vegetation area and smelt of damp when the door opened. All our clothes that we did hang in cupboards smelt unpleasantly.

We had dinner the first evening in the hotel bistro restaurant and the service was poor.

Only by talking to other guests did we discover there was a very good restaurant called Zinzi in the grounds of Hunters. There was very little help regarding our activities in the area apart from asking if we wanted to eat in their restaurants each evening.

Lovely country house on the garden route

The Hunters Country House looks stunning and highly maintained. The food is good and the staff try soooo hard to please, that actually it is a little too much.
We were there out of season too and the room needed airing.

If they could relax a little it would be more enjoyable, but we still give it four stars and would go back

Hunters Country House review

Fabulous, sizeable thatched cottages set in their own gardens. A great place to relax and explore the surrounding area. Three restaurants on site providing a great choice of food. Will definitely return.

Lovely stay at Hunters Country House

A lovely, characterful hotel in beautiful grounds, and with vey good and helpful staff. Very good location just outside stunning Plettenberg Bay, with its great beaches and good food and shopping.

The room was very pleasant, although possibly a bit snug, and we always had to remember the small step down into the bathroom - I bet they have an unusually high incidence of sprained ankles amongst guests! One small touch that could do with addressing by the hotel is the fit of the room doors - whilst it was lovely to come back after dinner to a turned down bed, also with delicious sweet nibbles on our bedside tables, the gap at the bottom of the room door was exploited by the local insect life, who were attracted by the bedside lights and resulted in a ten-minute game of "hunt and remove the bug" every evening! But these are minor points really in an otherwise delightful stay.

The grounds are superb, and the pool and lounger area, plus covered lounge with fireplace and armchairs, wonderful for spending a relaxing day, waited on by the helpful staff. It's also worth hunting out the tiny Chapel in the Woods, five minutes' walk from the hotel, which is a beautiful oasis of holy peace.

We ate in the Hotel on one evening of our stay, which was very pleasant in a slightly 'colonial' way, but on the other two nights dined at Zinzi, a short walk away across the Hotel grounds. This was altogether different, with a much more modern feel (think silver-sprayed kudu horns adorning the walls!) and an excellent, creative menu and wine list. the food was top-notch on both occasions, although on the second evening service did not reach the heights of our first dinner.

Overall, we thoroughly recommend Hunters as a relaxing stop-off between Cape Town and environs, and the game parks to the north of Port Elizabeth.

Super stay in Hunters

This was one of the highlights of our trip. The staff was excellent and also great with our kids (they called the waiter, Louis, their friend).

The room was much better than we could have possibly expected with a private pool and plenty of room.

The kids also really enjoyed 'cubs corner'.

When we ask them about their trip to South Africa they still list it as one of the highlights.

Superb stay at Hunters

What a fantastic place! We loved it (despite one chilly afternoon and a wet morning).

The gardens are beautiful, the garden suites are gorgeous and spacious, the private pool and terrace were delightful and the staff were helpful.

Breakfast (spread and service) not quite as good as the Twelve Apostles but the dinners were excellent. We ate in Zinzi's one night but were unable to get a table at Tsala. Again, with hindsight we would have pre-booked Tsala which I think would have suited us better than Zinzi's.

Welcomed with a bottle of sparkling wine and deli platter in our room to celebrate Wedding Anniversary - a lovely touch. Fruit bowl in room too - a great idea.
